Huntsville Police Citizens Advisory Council
The 10-member Huntsville Police Citizens Advisory Council (HPCAC) was created in 2010 (Ordinance 10-361) to improve the relationship and perception between Huntsville Police and the citizens of Huntsville. The HPCAC works to strengthen bonds between the police department and the community, thereby ensuring equal protection and service for all citizens. They recommend procedures, programs, or legislation to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Police Department and they work to keep the Chief of Police apprised of actions that create community concern.
